Sugared Strawberry fragrance oil is a sweet, mouthwatering strawberry scent. The strawberry top notes are enhanced by light notes of sweet nectar, green apples, and grape. It does not discolor or accelerate, making it a favorite fragrance oil for soap making!
Tested 12/01/18 by Carrie T. (owner) in a recipe of 33% lye solution with 5% superfat at 70 degrees. Recipe is 35% olive, 35% organic and sustainable palm, 20% coconut, and 10% castor. No acceleration or discoloration.
Tested again 3/16/19 by Carrie T. (owner) in a recipe of 33% lye solution with 5% superfat at 70 degrees. Recipe is 40% olive, 30% coconut, 20% organic and sustainable palm, 5% sweet almond oil, and 5% castor. No acceleration. No discoloration.
Other notes: 3/16/19 I made two batches of Sugared Strawberry. I accidentally used almost twice the use rate in the first batch, and the soap accelerated. The second batch experienced no acceleration. Because of this, I find it important to note that it is very important to use only the recommended usage rate of this fragrance. Otherwise, acceleration will most likely occur.

I had no discoloration but since it was my first soap ever I can't tell if it accelerated because I might have over mixed it. I still got beautiful swirls though so either way I had plenty of time to work. This scent sold out and is amazing.
A Must Have!
Some "Fruit" Fragrances are more Perfume than Fruit, but not this one. It's a perfect sweet strawberry scent in my farm fresh goat milk soaps and still going strong at 3 months using the recommended amount per pound of oils. LOVE IT so much, I came back to get a bigger bottle! I have used it on more than once and if it gets too hot it will bring on glycerin rivers. Keep the temps low or pop your soap in the freezer or it will misbehave. I had no problem with acceleration but I use a 50/50 water/lye solution with no additional water since I use raw goat milk and I'm used to working quickly.
Morphing into something nasty
As others have posted there is an acceleration in CP soap at the normal usage rate.
And after the cure time, the strawberry fragrance was soft or faint.
After 2 months the scent is now morphing into something unpleasant, a chemical or synthetic smell. I bought the 16 ounces and now feel I have to trash it.
I won't sell 2 or more bars of soap that I know with morph into something nasty in a costumers bathroom cabinet.
I feel that I have lost money on this purchase.
Hi Cynthia! I wanted to be able to smell a bar of Sugared Strawberry before I posted the review. I have a bar that is about 6 months old. It does smell different than a new bar. To me, it smells like strawberry salt water taffy. Not bad, but definitely sweeter with less sharp notes than out of bottle. I'm truly sorry it's not to your liking. Perhaps others will like the smell? It reminds me of my childhood and candy. :)
Product separated terribly
Love the scent, I'm sure people will like it. I soaped with my usual recipe at room temperature and all was going well until I started pouring into the mold. It started separating just horribly. I tried to blend more with my stick blender and it seemed to go back together but again, upon pouring it separated. I unmolded this morning and the FO is "oozing" out of the soap in small pockets. I guess I will need to totally rebatch this so I don't lose the entire thing. I am going to let it sit for a few days and see if it stops oozing. I won't purchase this FO again. I have never had a FO do this before and was quite disappointed in it. I attached a pic but the oozing isn't showing up real well on it. And it was such a pretty soap... :(
